I haven't ridden since I was younger (now 24) but I have always wanted to get back into it. I have finally done something proactive and have started going riding once each week. I have only been on hacks so far and really enjoying it and I thought I had remembered pretty much everything so I was feeling quite smug. I ask for a different horse each week for variety and this week I got a 13.2hh pony (so pretty) and I found the cantering awful - I just couldnt stay in my seat and had to hold onto the pommel to feel secure at some points. I didnt have this problem on the other horses so what went wrong? Pony too small for me? Massively out of practice so can't get used to other quickly? Or just some horses canters just feel really bouncy and are too hard to sit?
I've booked a lesson next week rather than a hack - what should I ask the trainer to concentrate on? Im not a complete novice so I would find starting from the beginning so boring.
Thanks for your advice in advance
